The Conference of State Court Administrators has released a paper on the use of digital recording systems in State Courts. The paper’s first recommendation is that
“State courts should move to digital recording as the method for making the verbatim record, with the possible exceptions for complex civil and capital criminal cases where real-time or stenographic reporting are specifically designated.”
The complete report may be obtained from the COSCA website by using the link below:
COSCA was established in 1955. It is dedicated to the improvement of state court systems. Its membership consists of the state court administrator or equivalent official in each of the fifty states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, American Samoa, Guam, Northern Mariana Islands, and the Virgin Islands.
